It was Alex’ birthday picnic in Delta Park over the weekend and afterwards I met her and her friends for a portrait shoot.

It was so much fun taking photos of this group of friends! I do like doing shoots like this with teenagers.

Even though Instagram selfies are a thing, it’s not the same when having photos taken by someone else. A portrait shoot should be fun but get you to relax in front of the camera… and you learn in the process what to do with your hands and how to stand etc. I love getting the best out of people!

We started the shoot at my favourite set of steps before hiking across the veld to get the gorgeous afternoon light.
